Yes, it is a builtin, but:
10] perldoc -f glob glob EXPR glob In list context, returns a (possibly empty) list of filename expansions on the value of EXPR such as the standard Unix shell /bin/csh would do. In scalar context, glob iterates through such filename expansions, returning undef when the list is exhausted. This is the internal function implementing the "<*.c>" operator, but you can use it directly. If EXPR is omitted, $_ is used. The "<*.c>" operator is discussed in more detail in "I/O Operators" in perlop. Beginning with v5.6.0, this operator is implemented using the standard "File::Glob" extension. See File::Glob for details.
So the builtin glob calls load the File::Glob module on the fly apparently
